Super Junior's Ryeowook was seen harshly firing back at an alleged "fan" leaving a malicious comment on his YouTube channel.
One netizen, who claimed they were a "fan" of Super Junior, commented on one of Ryeowook's YouTube videos,
"Ryeowook.. Let's go on a diet already, just because you're dating is that a reason to be lazy with your image care? If that's how it is, then how can you keep making money off of fans.. Just leave the group and go open a cafe with your girlfriend or something.. As someone who has been a fan for over 10 years, I pity you."
In response, Ryeowook himself replied,
"You pity me. Well I pity you.
You liked me for 10 years. That's kind of scary. I wonder if throughout those 10 years, the person you really loved was not me, but yourself and the act of being someone's devoted fan. I hope you will be able to look at yourself as who you really are. Also, I didn't make the money that I made because of you, I made money by working hard in my own place. The time that I spent on this career is filled with effort that you can't even begin to imagine, and it is my own path. Don't speak carelessly. And don't live while hurting others. That energy that you are spending is going to waste. Don't love anyone else either. Just live all alone your whole life. So you won't be able to hurt anyone else."
Many netizens applauded Ryeowook's sharp words, stating, "Good job Ryeowook kekekeke", "Just live your own life and quit wasting your time hating on other people", "Well put. So many fans who are so drunk on their own devotion to fandom culture need a reality check", "I agree with what Ryeowook said, but the best treatment for people like that is to ignore them", and more.
